Our rule-breaking, late-night series, The Night Shift, is going online:
The roar of the crowd. The smell of the greasepaint. Except the crowd at The Night Shift doesn’t roar, it laughs and cheers. And is greasepaint even a thing anymore? But there’s still something about the live experience you just can’t beat.
So we’re gonna bring that live experience to more of you. To steal a tired home-cinema cliché, we’re bringing it right into your living room. Or kitchen. Toilet. Office, if you’re pulling a late one. Basically anywhere you can take a phone or a laptop, because we’ll be streaming The Night Shift in beautiful HD via YouTube. It’s happening on Tuesday 26 July 2016 at 8.30pm.
You’ll get the whole live experience – any heckling, swearing or bum notes that might happen to accompany the music. And just like being there, there’s no rewind or watch on demand. It’s live once only, and if you miss anything then it’s gone. The comments will be open, so you can ask questions and make comments that’ll get passed on to the players. Get yourself a beer and it’s basically like you’re there.
